Kickstarter, go for it !

Recommended Posts

I'm interested, but I will not be backing it. I'm still trying to complete my Conan and Mythic Battles collections. I also try to follow two core rules in purchasing games (retail and/or kickstarter) 1. don't buy re-skinned games or too many that focus on 1 type of game mechanic unless it is a continuation of a series, expansion, etc, and 2. Don't buy a game if someone else in my game group is going to purchase. Sadly this hits both, its a re-skinned Conan, and my good buddy is also backing it.

I've heard this won't be going to retail and it is ONLY being offered on this upcoming Kickstarter, so you may want to re-think that strategy. Since I never got into Conan growing up or now, I really didn't care about that Kickstarter even though it looked pretty. But Batman is a different story for me, all over this one.

Hi, I backed Conan and Mythic Battles and I am looking forward to Batman.  I just have 1 concern.

 

I hope they fix the most annoying thing about the Conan system, fixed heroes and fixed equipment based on the scenario.  I hate that.  Other than that, the Conan system is great and is really fun.  The Batman theme is a perfect fit for the Conan system.

 

I just hate that they add all these extra characters, which is great, but you either have to make up your own scenarios for them or play the one mission that uses them. Being able to switch up heroes adds to the replayability of missions and players aren't stuck with a character they do not like.  Starting equipment  be can be handled in many ways to maintain balance.  a point system or even just offering a few starting equipment lists and the player picks one would work.

 

I find the current Conan method of fixed heroes and fixed equipment so annoying that it would be a showstopper for me if that is how it works in Batman.  Otherwise, I am all in.

You'll be able to choose amongst heroes for the various scenarios and you'll be able to pick items based on points.

Exactly !
There will be choices among the team you will play with (each player will have to chose a hero among two or three), every hero from the bat-family will have a certain amount of "bat-gadget points" in their bat-belt. So you'll be able to chose your own equipment, even if some heroes will have equipment cards given by the scenario.

Moreover, no more characters not used in the scenarios, every one of them will be included :)

I, too, am passing, somewhat reluctantly, on this one. $320 for the whole shooting match is too steep for my level of Batman fandom and it doesn't separate itself from the Knight Models game enough for me. The minis are bound to be less crappy than the Knight Models, but I'm already well over $100 into those...

Had no interest in Conan but heard the gameplay was great. Now Batman is a different Story, so I’m all in. Right now it’s my most anticipated game of 2019. This year was a tie between Rising Sun and Village Attacks and the year before that was Too Many Bones.

I see the Pledge Manager is open for late pledges.
I don't see a way to add expansions to my original base pledge though. Is that a thing?
